Gov. Bob McDonnell is suggesting several changes to the state budget that passed the General Assembly.
One of those changes would eliminate state funding for public broadcasting.
Lawmakers had passed a ten-percent cut.
David Mullins, President and General Manager of WVPT in Harrisonburg, says McDonnell's plan would mean a loss of $305,000.
The loss would impact station operations and the ability to produce local programs.
"It would impact our ability to be the local PBS station for the Shenandoah Valley," says Mullins.
He says the station's ability to serve schools would be impacted the most.
"Part of that funding funds our educational services department, which works directly with schools, providing teacher training, providing videos that are used in the classrooms," says Mullins.
Mullins says he hopes to see McDonnell's amendment overturned by the House or Senate.
